UKIP. Can they shed the single issue tag?I've been keeping an eye on the UKIP proposals over the last few weeks, mainly because of The Devils Kitchen who has decided to throw his hat in with them.
My issue with them is they still are a single issue party to most of the voters and a vote for them is in reality a protest vote at the moment.
However, with Nigel Farage leading it seems to be moving away from that. Read here. Plus, I like the way he talks. That speech about Blair's EU presidency was great. Watch it here and check out the rest. It made me look at them in a new light. He might not be everyone's cup of tea but he is a good speaker and the policies seem to be heading in the right direction.
The good news it is still a few years before an election so they have time to change that and a rebranding with a name change would be advisable. The UKIP still sounds a single issue party no matter how many policies are behind it.
